Gordon Ramsay is coming back to the kitchen.

Fox is serving up a seventh season of “MasterChef,” the network announced Wednesday. The renewal comes after much success for the “MasterChef” franchise.

Ramsay will return to the cooking competition series, along with Graham Elliot and Christina Tosi, who will all round out the judges’ panel yet again.

Currently in the midst of its sixth season, “MasterChef” has been Fox’s best performing series this summer, averaging a 2.0 rating in adults 18-49 and about 6 million viewers overall in Live+3 estimates from Nielsen. The series — plus its spinoff, “MasterChef Junior,” which kicks off its fourth season on Fridays this fall — is a key component of Fox’s unscripted slate, as the net is readying to say farewell to “American Idol” and recent entries like the new Ryan Seacrest vehicle “Knock Knock” haven’t made much ratings noise.

Tosi, who’s also joining as a judge on the fourth season of “MasterChef Junior” , is the flagship show’s newest addition, as she joined after Joe Bastianich left after five seasons.

“MasterChef” hails from Endemol Shine North America and One Potato Two Potato. Exec producers are Elisabeth Murdoch, Eden Gaha, Robin Ashbrook, Gordon Ramsay, Adeline Ramage Rooney, Patricia Llewellyn and Ben Adler.

Casting on the new season of “MasterChef” is currently under way, with open calls kicking off in San Diego this summer.

    Loved the show, as it was, in the beginning. Same, for Top Chef. Before all of the added locations, the running around, and the (always) almost tied scores, the show concentrated on the cooking skills.
    Master Chef will be just one more show, run to a strict script, which will molder away.
